Well, on Saturday I did not let myself knit until the handles were sewn on. Yes, I still have a sore spot on the knuckle of my thumb where I kept jabbing myself with the needle, but the bags are fully functional now, and actually in the mail heading towards my sisters, who I hope will find good uses for them.
Even with the delay to sew, I managed to complete the second sleeve of the circles yoke sweater this weekend. I cast on for the body and I'm getting ready to turn the hem. Hopefully, I will have a new sweater soon.
My Christmas cactus bloomed on time this year :)
